A big thank you to all who participated in the Mission and Service Ministry January collection for the homeless. Through a contact via Isaiah House, this was the first time that we had designated an entire month for a focused collection and were overwhelmed with the congregation’s gracious support.
Friends also got involved. And neighbors assembled kits with their kids … each kit had a little note with scripture from the children…what a beautiful teaching moment for the young ones.
We received a total of 680 jackets and sweaters, 55 new jeans, 15 blankets, 76 hygiene kits, 10 commercial boxes of trail bars, and $400 in donations! We are filled with joy and appreciation.
Our friends on the street are very grateful for your kindness and generosity.
